Mentoring Program

The 2024 Mentoring Program is free for PMI Tasmania Chapter members.


The 2024 Mentoring Program kicked off with a bang in February with a "speed dating" style session to match Mentors with Mentees.  These pairs are now going through the process of holding their initial meetings and setting their goals for the year.  

Although the 2024 Mentoring Program has already kicked off, it's not too late to get involved as a Mentor or Mentee. If you'd like to be matched, and you're a PMI Tasmania member, please email and and cc

The Mentoring Program provides an opportunity for mentees to enhance professional skills and to enjoy working collaboratively with a supportive mentor to achieve your goals. It is also an opportunity for mentors to give back to the profession and to share experience and knowledge with less experienced project managers, or those taking on new and different challenges.


How does it work?

  • Matching of Mentors and Mentees is based on individual preferences and overlaps in needs and capabilities.

  • You will complete an assessment to help us understand your needs and preferences.

  • If you prefer to match with someone who lives in your region, that will be considered in the matching process.

  • Mentees can only have one program Mentor.

  • Mentors can have multiple Mentees but must meet with them separately.

  • A member can be a Mentor and Mentee at the same time, e.g. be mentored by another mentor and provide mentoring to another member.

  • You don’t have to be a senior or older person to be a Mentor, we are looking for diverse skills, experience and backgrounds.

  • The program facilitates further matches at other times, subject to the availability of Mentors.




  • Our mentoring year kicked off with an online “mentoring speed dating” session where prospective mentors and mentees from the PMI Melbourne and PMI Tasmania Chapters meet.

Mid Year:

  • Program participants connect at a Mid-Year Mentoring event.


  • In November, we celebrate the year’s successes with Mentors and Mentees presenting on their shared journeys.

And beyond:

  • Mentors and Mentees can continue their relationship beyond this year by mutual agreement.

Remember, it's not too late to get involved!  Just email and and cc to express your interest in the 2024 Mentoring Program.

Benefits of the Mentoring Program

Mentoring is based on encouragement, constructive comments, openness, mutual trust, respect and willingness to learn and share. It is also a serious commitment for mentors who give their time to mentees.

Mentoring has become an increasingly popular method of developing professional skills and knowledge. Benefits of mentoring include:

  1. Opportunity for mentees to enhance project management and people skills.

  2. Opportunity for both mentors and mentees to learn about project management approaches in other companies, industries and countries.

  3. An accountability framework for engaging with professional goals.

  4. PDUs can be claimed by mentors and mentees.

  5. Just in time support: Mentees receive information and support when they need it.

  6. Relevance: work issues can be discussed and progressed.

  7. Satisfaction for mentors when they see mentees achieving their goals.

  8. Issues discussed during mentoring meetings are strictly confidential.
